UK has Least Energy Efficient Homes

A recent report by "Which?"-the consumer watchdog- has highlighted the fact that the UK has the least energy efficient homes in Europe.

Despite various government initiatives more and more households are being plunged into fuel poverty. As Richard Lloyd (the executive director of 'Which') stated,
"With millions of homes still not insulated, energy efficiency is a collective failure of successive governments."

Poor insulation and draughty homes mean that a great deal of expensive energy is being wasted.

The present government's approach has been to offer grants towards many energy saving home improvements through its 'Green Deal' scheme. The money allocated to this scheme has been released in 3 phases so far. Indeed the 3rd phase was fully allocated within 10 days such was the demand! 

Many energy commentators are waiting with baited breath to see what the new post election government will do to improve the energy efficiency of the UK's housing stock.

The good news is that there is still time to apply to the current Green Deal scheme as there is a certain amount of money still available from phase 2 of the scheme.
